Covid-19 update - 5th January 2021


In accordance with current Government requirements, Penicuik Meeting is not holding face-to-face Meetings for Worship until further notice.  However, we still hold Meetings for Worship on-line through Zoom at 11am on the first Sunday of each month.  Please email for joining details.


We hope to resume face-to-face meetings for worship as soon as we can.


We also keep in touch as best we can with individual members and attenders of the Meeting by e-mail and phone, and we ask those who know of Members and Attenders without access to e-mail to pass on any messages to them - if they can do so safely and legally.


Central Edinburgh Meeting continues to hold virtual Meetings for Worship on line, as do some other meetings in Scotland.  Currently no Meetings in South East Scotland are holding face-to-face meetings.  We suggest you contact individual meetings directly through the Quakers in Scotland website for relevant updated information.


Please contact Central Edinburgh Meeting through the Quakers in Scotland website for further details on Central Edinburgh Meetings for Worship.


We pray that you all remain well in these difficult times.
